Some residents have asked to change the name of their suburb from Maroubra to Lurline Bay. The proposal is only for the area bounded by north side of Torrington Road, the east side of Malabar Road and the south side of Liguria Street.

We recently sent out a survey to 466 residents and property owners in this area. We had 264 responses with the results being:

  • no - 15
  • yes - 249

We also received a petition with 23 signatures asking that the south side of Torrington Road be included in any proposal to change the name of the area to Lurline Bay.

Any decision about a suburb name change is made by the Geographical Names Board of NSW and not by Randwick Council. Before Council can a request a name change for this area, we need to determine if there is wide community support for the proposal.

On 11 December 2012, Randwick Council resolved that:

(a) Council engage in community consultation with local residents regarding the proposal to change the name of their suburb from Maroubra to Lurline Bay; and 

(b) community consultation be limited to within the potential boundaries proposed to be the north side of Torrington Road, the east side of Malabar Road and the south side of Liguria Street.
